Changing the Look of Windows XP

ive seen lots of cool looking desktops. i know you can change the way windows looks but dont know how as ive never really been interested in looks. much like cars, id rather have performance and usability than looks. but id like to see if i can make my windows look a little different. how do i go about doing this?

Did you install some or something?

You also need to get Style XP (http://www.tgtsoft.com), which will make managing themes much easier, and allow you to add or delete themes.

Anything looks better than the gay default theme.

I've thought about switching to LiteStep. Might do that whenever I decide to format/reinstall. It's been about a year now, and I'm getting that itch again
